Fire Me!

Researchers of the L3S coded an application called FireMe!

FireMe! collects Twitter-feeds with critical (or insulting) remarks on the user’s boss. Being listed on the leaderboard might have serious impact on a career and cause all kinds of legal problems. The app clearly shows a lot of privacy-, copyright and labour-law related issues of Twitter. No wonder that media coverage is huge and #fireme is indeed a hot hashtag at the moment.

L3s is a partner of IRI and FireMe! shows how much potential lies in such kind of interdisciplinary work.
